I made this for my college chemistry class, and thought I'd share it in case anyone else could get something out of it.

    Gelatin and gum arabicingredients of the Mentos
    …All contribute to the jet effect.
    How it Works
  • 5. How it Works
    The physical structure of the Mentos is the most significant cause of the eruption due to nucleation (nucleation-site theory).
    The surface of the mint Mentos is littered with many small holes, allowing CO2 bubbles to form very rapidly and in great quantity, in turn causing the jet of foam.
    This was further supported when rock salt was used as an effective substitute for Mentos.
